  • "Well equipped and comfortable accommodation."

    Just very noisy location 5am wake up as the delivery / refuse lorries start. Was never able to park close to drop off stuff, so long walks up hill to the long stay car park.

    Hi Timothy Many thanks for your feedback and am glad you found Rooby's Retreat comfortable and well equipped.I am sorry for the early wake up call. The weekly refuse collections in the town start from 6.30am onwards ahead of the town centre becoming busy with pedestrians and traffic but provide a vital service in keeping our delightful seaside town clean and tidy for everyone’s enjoyment. We recommend using the pay and display car park across the road behind Tesco's for drop off. Property Owner

  • "We had a fabulous stay thank you, maybe a light in the passage way would be good for when we came back in the evening or perhaps we didn’t see it !"

    Brilliant location

    Hi Clare, glad you enjoyed your stay at Rooby’s Retreat. Yes there is a timed light switch just inside the street door for lighting the passage and another one at the entrance to the first floor. We will point it out to people in future upon their arrival. Thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

    Four stars ⭐️ is because the location means an early wake up call with refuse lorries and their following of very noisy seagulls Property perfect

    We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Rooby’s Retreat and found the 'property perfect' although I am sorry for the early wake up call. The weekly refuse collections start from 6.30am onwards ahead of the town centre becoming busy with pedestrians and traffic but provide a vital service in keeping our delightful seaside town clean and tidy for everyone’s enjoyment.
